Tips on How to Advertise Yourself on Fiverr, and Does it Work?


Recommended Posts

Hello! I am here to make what I think is a potentially helpful tips post! 

Here are some of my observations on what works very well to advertise for yourself in a way that creates more buyers! 

1. Promoted Gigs. Yes, this does work, at least for the gig I have that can use it. I recommend staying up to date with the amount you have to pay per click to beat competitors to the advertisement space and remain relevant. Last month, I paid roughly $10 in all, and I received (after Fiverr percentage) $76. It is a profit, for sure, and it can even land you a regular! 

2. Buyer Requests. Definitely make use of the buyer requests tab under the "More" tab on your account. This is where a lot of early buyers will come from. You are putting yourself out there for people to choose you, so be careful and choose jobs right that you think you can accomplish, don't have too much competition, and really fit your style. If you are just starting on Fiverr, know the buyers request tab is most active for only a few heartbeats at random times around midnight to three o' clock or so based on my observations then. You may want to sacrifice some rest for getting requests out in these early stages of selling. 

3. Social Media. It definitely never hurts to post your gigs on social media, especially if you have a large following or a supportive family. I definitely urge to even make an account you grow specifically for your work! You can build up your cliental not only on Fiverr this way! If you're lucky, you may even have thankful clients post your gig on their pages, which has happened for me before! 

4. Adding Proper Tags. Even putting proper tags on your gig can really act as an advertisement in many ways. If you tag well and make a catchy and detailed (but not too detailed or cluttered) gig title, then people can more easily find you! I recommend looking at other similar gigs and drawing inspiration (not copying) from them! 

That is all for now! Hope this helps someone! I try to be detailed in hopes this gets to someone who needs it!

Stop cluttering by posting "Great Share" "Great" "Nice" "Thanks" etc.

There are react buttons to express your reactions. 

 

I honestly think it is more positive and shows more care than just a reaction! I find nothing wrong with positivity. It IS clutter to complain about someone just being positive, however, in my opinion, as it adds nothing but negativity to the forum.

 @harbingerdesignI appreciate your opinion.

But there this topic could have different statement, opinion from different people. And might be posted here. Even people are posting their statement/opinion.

Those "great" "nice" "thanks" comments may create clutter to get the formative statement/opinion regarding the topic.

 

"I'm not saying this is prohibited, But it creates clutter"

When we do have another option to express out reaction, Then why don't we proper use of that!

As a Top Rated Seller, I get a fair amount of orders in a day. But no matter if you're a new seller, level 1, level 2 or even a TRS, mastering the Fiverr algorithm is key to your success. 

I've had the chance to join the Seller Plus program here on Fiverr, and by doing so, I got a few of my suspicions confirmed about ranking on Fiverr. 

The information was no surprise at all, but I'm sharing this with you because I'm sick and tired of reading all the bad advice on the forum (like staying online 24/7 and spamming social media). 

So what's the secret to getting more sales quickly? 

Make your buyers happy!

Yes, it's that "easy". 

Ok, let me explain: 

Fiverr has two very different review systems. One is open to the public, and you know this as the star rating. It's the feedback you get to read and respond to. 

The other is the hidden, "secret" review that your buyers leave after completing an order. This secret feedback can make a lot of difference. Through Fiverr Plus, I got some insight into this with my Success Manager. 

I was told that my "secret" feedback had been very positive and even improved in the past few months. 

This isn't by accident. 

I've always tried to over-deliver a bit on most orders, like giving an extra take for voice-overs or giving recommendations on top of my translations etc. 

This summer, I've decided to up my game even more. 

Maybe I'll do some tedious editing that the client didn't include in their order, like syncing to a 1-minute video (something that I usually charge for), or just improving their script for free without them having to ask for it. 

Small things that take me 5 minutes but can make all the difference for the client. 

And guess what: I nearly doubled my revenue in the past month, too! And in August, I'm beating my record again, after hitting record revenue in July. 

Satisfaction up, orders up. 

I wasn't aware that my buyer satisfaction wasn't as good as possible until my chat with the success manager. I did receive a lot of five-star reviews, after all. 

But when your buyer is told to leave feedback that you'll never see, they tend to be more honest. Perhaps a bit more demanding.

If the buyer just got the wow-factor handed to them, they are way more likely to give you positive, secret feedback. 

You need to deliver high-quality work for this to be effective. A buyer won't leave a positive review and secret feedback if you send them two crappy logos instead of one. 

But by knowing how important this secret feedback is to your ranking, to what badges you're getting, you can up your game and see real improvement to your business here on Fiverr!

Obviously, making your buyers happy is also important to get repeat clients, which is another important thing Fiverr has begun to focus on a lot lately. 

So stop doing the same old thing. Stop being online 24/7. Stop spamming social media. And start making your buyers happy, every single time! All it takes is hard work, dedication, and talent. 

Ok, so it's not as "easy" as I said at the beginning. Surprise, surprise, it does take actual hard work to succeed! So get your working hat on, and make your buyers happy!
